    A short word for Lance Armstrong that you will, please, forward.

    Mr. Armstrong, I will be more than delighted to see you run the Tour de France in 2009. I will ask you to put aside the difficulties the Tour de France management and the journalist are giving you.
    Your fight is greater than that. And anyway, just the fact that you will do it again makes you a winner.

    Please do not doubt and do it.

    A french non-fan but so admirative of you dedication and work.

    All the best to you

    Dear Lance Armstrong,

    Hi here writing you is a man, Ashton Bishop, who is deeply interested in running the 2009 NYC marathon to inspire those with cancer that life isn’t over with yet. Myself, a head injured survivor who has already run 9 marathon’s, and done some extraordinary things with seizures, ought to be a prime example that my life wasn’t over after that TBI at age 9. Frankly I just want to put some happiness in the heart’s of those with cancer, a head injury or whatever their disability may be. Let’s all live strong!!!
